Preventing Academic Misconduct

'Most students understand, in a general way, that their academic achievements are premised on academic integrity: honesty, fairness, trust, respect, accountability, and responsibility. The academic community thrives when all members adhere to these habits of integrity, and GSIs have an important role in fostering students’ commitment to academic integrity.

Students generally want to do things right, but academic misconduct does occur. Sometimes the students err because they’re not aware of the rules, and some students commit academic misconduct knowing that they are doing so.'

This guide for grad students provides many resources to help instructors deal with cheating.
